I'm far from an expert on libtool. Using DESTDIR everything including shared libraries is installed in a staging area by `make install'. Files will only be moved to the ``live filesystem'' by the package manager after things like make install have finished running. Currently `libtool --mode=finish' is run on the ``live filesystem'' library directory. This should not have any effect on anything in the staging area. Thus `libtool --mode=finish' should either be run on the DESTDIR staging area or not at all.
